Rillage Point

06.15–08.00, clear, E4: first Whimbrels of the year (5), plus 12 Wheatears (all at NW extremity of Point first thing; all had gone when I walked back past at 07.45). Also 3 Blackcaps, 3 Whitethroats, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 3 Chiffchaffs. Change in weather meant much less visible migration than yesterday: 10 Swalows, 11 House Martins, 1 Sand Martin, 5 alba wagtails, 25 Goldfinches, 11 Siskins and four apparently migrating Rooks. Lesser Black-backed Gulls continuing to trickle through, with 19 flying E.
